Add dye to pan of hot water and stir. Amount of dye is in direct proportion to intensity of color desired in finished piece. Water temperature is just under a boil. Hot water results in deeper color penetration than cold water will give. It is preferable to use a little dye for a large and more permanent color dye bath than vice versa. Use only enamel, stainless steel or glass pans. Do NOT use Teflon-coated or copper pans. Aluminum can be used but eventually the metal will be affected.
